Sony NV-U71T GPS system
Sony's NV-U71T is a full-color GPS unit with a 3.5-inch display, but what separates it from rivals is a touchscreen technology called Gesture Command. Owners can set the unit to automatically execute certain functions when a finger is swiped in a particular pattern. Other useful aspects to the receiver are real-time traffic information and re-routing, and a map database that includes all of Canada, Puerto Rico, and the United States. Seven million "points of interest" have been pre-programmed. If you want to buy the U71T, Sony is taking holiday pre-orders from its website for $500 whole or $15 a month.
